One of the most valuable passages I read this year is this: “I don’t need to provide my opinion on every subject.”
It’s OK to simply listen. Most times, my opinion isn’t going to change minds. In fact, it seldom does.
Next time you read something on social media that makes you angry, ask yourself, “Do I need to engage? or “What do I hope to accomplish by engaging with this person?”
Not everyone has earned the right to hear your opinion. Share it with those who will respect you, no matter where you come down on a subject.
